My name is Dropjaw Bertone. I am a songwriter/producer/musician from Gainesville, Florida. Since I was six years old I have been involved in music and performing. My dad's band would rehearse at our house and the drummer would leave his drums there after they were finished rehearsing and I would play on them. After a few days, my dad and I began having our own rehearsals together (my dad playing guitar and/or piano) and within a few weeks I performed for the first time in public with his band. From that point on I have been a full-time musician in my heart and soul and taught myself drums, bass, guitar, keyboard, harmonica and lapsteel.
I released my first solo album "D.N.A." (Dropjaw's New Album) in September, 2005 featuring 10 original songs on which I perform all instruments and vocals. Since then I have released a total of 25 solo albums. My current album is called "Dropical Storm Spike" which was released on December 14, 2017.
My dream is to have my songs heard and appreciated around the world. I pursue that dream every day with a passion. Songwriting is my main focus and I love to write in as many forms and genres as possible. I hope you all enjoy my music and I look forward to seeing and hearing from you all soon!
Always with love,
